Outpost Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$94.99

96 Points - rare                                                     Rare new Howell Mountain Cabernet from Outpost Winery and famed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. Limited. 97 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes mostly from the estate vineyard (there’s a small part from the True vineyard) and it appears to be a classic Howell Mountain Cabernet. Blue fruits, ample minerality, and some violet and mountain scrub brush notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, layered 2017 that has fine tannins and a terrific sense of elegance." Outpost was established in 1998 with the vision of producing wines that are a living, breathing embodiment of this magical place. Truly one of the world’s great Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel growing regions, the unique terroir of the Outpost vineyards – the hard, rocky red soil, high altitude, gentle cooling breezes and sunny western exposure – produces fruit of incredible intensity and richness, with a distinctive spice you simply cannot find anywhere else. Sharing this philosophy and intrigued by the potential of the estate’s magnificent vineyards, winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown has crafted the wines from the beginning.

Wifey’s fruit cobbler in the background. Outpost is brilliant, as is the cobbler. Prior notes apply.

This is just straight up brilliant. Punchy, grippy and audacious. Direct from the winery for the best price on the market.

Had this 2017 Outpost cab during a zoom tasting with @Antonio Galloni and Thomas Rivers Brown today! For a 2017 this wine is phenomenal.. so good right now but will certainly get better with more aging!
